Counting my blessings...

Happy List for today!
My ankle may be broken, but thanksgiving will get 
me through...
So, I had a dear friend visit me and bring me lunch; 
another friend came later on to visit; 
I have had chocolate, gingeraid kombucha, have ice for my leg, 
an appointment for Monday at the orthopedic doctor, 
my husband is on his way home and I have more things with me
 (next to me on the bed) to keep me busy 
and I look forward to dinner later on! And my cute knee scooter should come tomorrow...
 my foot hurts at times, partly from the heavy splint itself. 
But I am trying to stay busy so I don't think of it. 
Also a dear friend called me at just the right time between visits of others. 
So a lot to be thankful for. 
And My Beloved Husband is home working from 
tomorrow - Monday! And some friends are going to DV bring us food
 which is a huge help too! so thankful...
My Husband is almost home now and is bringing me a potted plant
from the farmer's market!

Oh no! I'm so sorry this happened to you! It does sound like you're getting good care. Chocolate heals all wounds. Sending prayers for a quick recovery.

Gosh, I somehow missed the tale of how you broke your ankle, but just now caught up with your blog. It looks like you are being well care for with lots of love! All prayers for quick healing of the injured bone and that you will soon be on both feet again. In the meantime, enjoy being pampered!

You're a good sport! I thought the first three days of a broken bone were miserable (I broke a collarbone and a wrist).
Hasty healing!

Oh dear! It always happens when we least expect it. How wonderful to know that you have so many good and faithful friends and a loving husband to take care of you. I will pray that you will heal quickly. May this be a time of peace and refreshment for you as you heal.

Oh my, I take a couple days off the internet and see what happens!!! Please take it easy and let yourself heal. At least now you'll have plenty of knitting time :)

Christ is risen, Elizabeth!

I'm sorry to hear of your accident. But I must say it's encouraging to see how positive you are in the midst of such discomfort. Hopefully good friends, Mr. Husband, and keeping busy will keep your spirits up while healing.

Perhaps St. Nektarios' paraclesis would provide you some comfort. There is a beautifully chanted version of it, though I can't seem to find a link to the CD. You can hear samples of it here:

Love and prayers to you; I remember the misery of my broken wrist very vividly!

Praying for you dear Elizabeth! Your positivity is inspiring.
